Title: How do we change Dingoo Firmware Font Style?
Post by: iamkenIT on September 23, 2011, 02:13:52 pm
The default font style is pretty indecent, unlike infamous gaming consoles, which are more mature and developed for better user experience.

First look on the console, tech guys undoubtedly guess that the Dingoo is a china made console.

Is there any way to modify the font style, if it uses this technique in processing texts.

It's possible but not worth the amount of effort it would require, probably easier to write a nicer looking menu from scratch and just replace the inbuilt one.

fonts are located at \system\font in the firmware, and they're bitmap based fonts that will be always rendered as such, so forget about true type fonts or clear type or whatever. there's a .TTF font available there, though, but its function is to act as the default typeface for the text reader and it's not used anywhere else

since you're seeing value in how "tech guys" (lol) perceive your cheap china made console (which it is) instead of the amount of things you can do with it for the price you paid for it, can i ask you why the hell you bought a dingoo in the first place?

it's way easier than what you believe. it's a tiresome process, though

a380 has nice font style

And no devs working on it, and probably none ever will.  ::)

Ya, i'm testing out other fonts which are compat.
